I can only speak to the 3 brands I have used. Bushnell, Wildgame Innovations and Primos. I bought a bunch of the Wildgame Innovations because I needed several and didn't want to spend the equivilant of a house payment to get them. They work just fine. They don't have the features of the nicer cams and the battery life isn't as good but I get plenty of good pics from them.

No complaints from the Bushnell or the Primos. The primos is my favorite of the ones I've had though. Good battery life, good pictures, IR works well and the range is great for my application.

junkmonkey17: I have seven of the 2009 Bushnell Trophy Trail cameras. They are giving good service. Two year manufacture warranty and good customer service. I also have four of the Moultrie M100 which is a higher version of the M80. These are giving good service. One year manufacture warranty and good customer service. You may find a good deal on EBay but if the seller is not authorized by the manufacture, there is no warranty.
As for buying cheap, I realize every one has a place for their money. Cheap cameras is what you get. The manufacture of any product can not put expensive parts into a product and sell it cheap. You get what you pay for. Cheap cameras equal poor quality picture, video, white outs and blurry pictures. Some of the cheaper cameras are very hard on batteries. As an example, I had several of the WildView EZ Cam. This was an early version that only took pictures. When cameras came out that would take picture or video, I sold the WildView. Some cameras, the trigger time is too slow either missing the animal completely or only getting part of it.
If you haven't done so, view some of the pictures submitted on various camera forums, and if you have questions, email the member as I'm sure they would be happy to help you. Good luck in your choice.

i've got a truth cam 35. battery life is good. and it takes good pictures. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the top manufacturers though.

I like Reconyx, Moultrie and Big Rack Trophy Products cameras. The most important thing to remember is make sure you buy a camera tha uses AA batteries or the battery life will not be good. Reconyx and the Big Rack cameras' offices are within 20 minutes of my house so if something goes wrong I take them in and they are fixed fast. Moultrie cameras are hit and miss with some being better that others. Check Ebay for deals.

I have enjoyed my Stealth Prowler although the trigger time could stand to be improved.

I would check out Amazon as well. They have some pretty good deals on trail cams.

Ive got a primos truth cam 35. Had it for three years now. Love it. Get thousands of pics on a set of batteries. Takes good pictures. Good range. Paid less than $100.

Bushnell Trophy Cam. 3 words - 2 year warranty. And they stand by it.

They have my business going forward.
